Where the Teochews Gather

Ah Orh Seafood Restaurant
Blk 115 Jalan Bukit Merah
Singapore 160115
Tel: 62757575

Despite the changing palate of my father who has moved from a traditional Teochew man to a more cosmopolitan man who has learnt to appreciate the other flavours of various cuisines, he still craves for his comfort food. I personally think it is one of those favourite Teochew eateries since the first time we came here, we were brought by another Teochew family and it was recommended to us by another Teochew family on another occasion. My dad loves this place because of the wonderful steamed fish that they do here. The fish is wonderfully fresh and it is simply rapidly steamed with some salted vegetables, tomatoes, dried mushrooms and ginger, and the end product is rather spectacular – a juicy piece of fish and a wonderful broth that sucked up all the essence of the fish and the ingredients that it has been steamed with. Slurp, burp, oops, pardon my manners.

Nosh: Seafood selections are available on display for you and the usual zhi-char varieties such as the stir-fried vegetables, tofu varieties, prawn pasted chicken, soups and such. You’ll have to choose what fish you would liked steamed, and if you would want a whole fish or simply a fillet or a tail piece. For our selection of fish we had a garoupa and the other dishes that we had included an oyster omelette, stir fried kai lan and a cold crab.

Pay: S$20-S$25 per person

Service: It only exist to serve food, you have to place your orders at the food display area.
